3 litreswater (3000 mls)
Salt content: 0% (by weight, not counting salt in other ingredients)


Wash the rice under cold water using a sieve.

Bring the water to a boil and add the washed rice.
Cook for the time prescribed on your rice packet (e.g. 12 minutes for basmati).

When the cooking time is up, taste the rice and check that it is to your liking. You want a bit of a bite but no crunchiness.

Now pour the contents of your saucepan through a sieve or fine colander.
Take a fork and lightly move it through the rice to keep the grains from sticking to each other.
Now let the rice sit in the sieve (put the sieve into your saucepan and put the lid on top) for 15 minutes. Go through the rice again with the fork to separate the grains. Serve.

9How To Cook Brown Rice# Soak 1 cup of brown rice for 1 hour and drain.# Add the rice to a medium-sized saacpeun and cook, uncovered, on medium-high heat until the rice is dry (2 3 minutes). Stir in a small amount of salt if desired.# While dry cooking the rice, bring a kettle of water to a boil. Add 2 1/4 2 1/2 cups boiling water to the rice and wait for the water to return to a full boil.# When the water has returned to a full boil, turn the heat down to medium-low (a range setting of about 3). Cover and cook the rice until the water is fully absorbed (about 40 minutes). Do not stir the rice. 5. Remove the rice from the heat, and let sit, still covered, for at least 10 minutes. 6. Fluff the rice with a fork and serve.What You Need: * Brown rice * A medium-sized saacpeun, with lid
8this is one-pot wonder, but it sondus like you need two pans: one for the rice and one for cooking the chicken. Am I reading the recipe incorrectly? Either way, it sondus delicious!
